waxbanks A fine show. The second set opens with a 35-minute Wolfman's > 2001; the Wolfman's Bro hits one of those my-god-this-band-is-tight peaks around the 14-minute mark. If things get a little repetitious thereafter, you can doubly console yourself: 1) 'I live a life of privilege, to be able to complain about such things'; and 2) 'At least it's not that insufferable 11/30/97 Wolfman's coda, right?' The rest of the set is charming, though doesn't Slave > Chalkdust seem a little...backward to you?

Penn42 Just gotta give another shout out to this Wolfman's, HOT Damn! In the middle of a tour that's just brimming with funk, I can't think of anything else from the tour that's funkier. This is not the best show of the tour, but it does contain one of the best, if not the best, jam of the tour, and the rest of the show is still super solid as well. A must for a fan of 98.

DanceTheJig728 Definitely a great show all around. Moma is a nice opner and the Jim jam hits some great peaks and gets a little dark for a minute. Stash and Taste are great and you can't got wrong with a rockin' Loving Cup set closer.

The 2nd set starts with a fantasticly funky Wolfman's that's gets straight-up dirty. 2001 keeps the funk going and the SOAMUle Ha Ha Ha sandwich keeps the energy going and is a downright fun listen. waxbanks is on the money with Slave>CDT being backwards but a great way to close the set nonetheless. Character Zero encore, meh, but this is a very solid show. The Wolfman's>2001 is certainly a must-hear for any phan IMO

HighNote Must have show for your collection from Summer of '98 for the following reasons IMHO....

(1) SBD available @ PHISHOWS.COM (get this show!!!)

(2) Moma Dance --> Jim is one of my favorite openers in the entire archive as far as combinations go and these two versions sound very tight

(3) Stash and Taste both are played superb

(4) Wolfman's --> 2001 brings the funk and sounds real tight and I def. agree with WAXBANKS's observation

(5) MULE --> HA HA HA --> MULE reveals the band is having a blast and is in the mood

(6) Slave has a very well played climax and otro

(7) Chalkdust to end the 2nd set on a strong, intense note!

Just my $.02

theghost I loved this show. The crowd was fresh and seems like the wooks stopped in Austin and skipped this one. The venue was very nice...trees, brooks and walking bridges. It kind of reminds me of Blossom but perhaps even nicer.

It's mostly a Type 1 show but most everything is excellent. RJim, Stash, Taste, and Slave were particularly good.

I took a first-time friend to this show and hooked him easily.

Give this one a deserves more praise.

pikepredator I came here to say the same thing Penn42 said - this Wolfman's is incredible, one of the few things in the phish world that I think is under-appreciated. it has the slow and steady strut right from the start, then unfolds and sort of shapeshifts for a few minutes. it evolves but it doesn't really grow, so patient. sick, relaxed lick starts 10:30. it's like the most mature hey-hole jam they've played. a few minutes later that little section ends in some fog and emerges into a power jam that totally goes where you hope it does after faking you out. patience is rewarded. and then you get to chill out in some space before they bust into 2001.

just a great jam. must-hear.
